What Your Cameraman Did Not Tell You?

 

As the wedding day approaches, you will be getting ready for an extremely important – once in a lifetime – event of your life. In order to capture the magic of those few ephemeral moments, the strides in technology have made much progress. Today, with photos, videos and even audio clips, it is extremely easy to recreate those very moments some few years – or even decades – down the lane. And of course, when that time comes to reminisce, you will want to make sure that the day was one to remember – one filled with joyous memories and feelings. If you want to make sure of this point, then, here are some points you might want to hear from your photographer (who might forget you to advise you on this):As the wedding day approaches, you will be getting ready for an extremely important – once in a lifetime – event of your life. In order to capture the magic of those few ephemeral moments, the strides in technology have made much progress. Today, with photos, videos and even audio clips, it is extremely easy to recreate those very moments some few years – or even decades – down the lane. And of course, when that time comes to reminisce, you will want to make sure that the day was one to remember – one filled with joyous memories and feelings. If you want to make sure of this point, then, here are some points you might want to hear from your photographer (who might forget you to advise you on this):

• Explain your family and other relationships – any top wedding photographer will try his or her utmost best to capture as many snaps of all the attendees of the wedding as possible. However, it is virtually impossible to devote as much time as the immediate family and friends ought to have to the other guests. Accordingly, it is important that your photographer is aware of ‘who’ he or she should be paying more attention to. Take some time – hopefully before the wedding day – to introduce your most important relatives and friends.

• Wacky photos are not the only photos you should be taking – the traditional wedding photo Hong Kong is that of the new extended family together. It is what you find framed in many homes’ living rooms. Today, with the increased emphasis on personality, there is a greater trend towards ‘wackier’ and more personalized photos – whilst these traditional photos are viewed less favourably. However, make some time to take these photos, for they are the ones that ultimately will end up behind a frame in your parents’ homes.

• Pay attention to yourself, your relationships and your feelings – what many photographers witness on the day of the wedding is that many couples – especially the brides – tend to fret over the minor details of the day and that this worry ends up transferring into their photographs. What any photographer will want is a relaxed atmosphere with relaxed attendees. It is hard to achieve this when the most important couple is worried over details that will easily be unimportant a few years (or even months) later. Keep aside the minor details and what went wrong; focus instead on the wedding itself – on your partner, your family and friends, and finally, your emotions and feelings. This is the single best advice you can expect from any photographer to ensure that your photographs will look joyful and feel real.
